Mount Kisco's re-elected (and newly elected) village officials took their oaths of office on Sunday evening, a day after their terms officially started.
With ceremonies in the rotunda of Village Hall, Trustee Jean Farber was sworn in for her second term by Village Justice Mark Farrell, while Trustee Karen Schleimer was sworn in for her first term by Mayor Michael Cindrich. Farrell himself was sworn in for another term by fellow Village Justice John Donohue.
The three elected officials, all Democrats, each won their elections in November while running unopposed. Schleimer is succeeding fellow Democrat Joseph Morreale, who was elected in 2010 and chose not to run for another term.
Farber and Schleimer have terms of two years. The newly sworn officials were also joined by family members.
